Seacrest shared his experience via social media and had quite the sense of humor about the whole situation. He was able to publish video to Twitter and make calls during the ordeal.

"We didn't make it to floor two," he explained, adding that the only snacks on hand were Altoids, cough drops and an Advil.

"I will tell you this: If you've ever been stuck in an elevator, it's funny and cute for about 10 minutes," Seacrest said. "And then about 20 minutes in, it's not so funny anymore. But thank you to the fire department who came and rescued us and pried those doors open."
